Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major, Op. 81
Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88

An inheritor of German Romanticism, Dvorák’s compositions draw on a rich diversity of influences. The composer never sought to revolutionize his musical surroundings. Weaving Slavic folk melodies into Western-style symphonic and chamber music, he nonetheless created a modern Czech classic music, a new style realized in the composer’s Quintet for Piano and Strings, performed in this stunning Verbier Festival rendition. A not-to-be-missed evening featuring Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, Yuri Bashmet, Vilde Frang, and Daniil Trifonov all on one stage!
